LG Supercharged the ThinQ AI TV with Google Assistant

Some may not agree that having Google Assistant on any device is supercharging it. However, one must agree that it enhances the device capabilities significantly with Google Assistant. For example, your TV, specifically, LG ThinQ AI TV, can now listen to voice commands to access and search for information as well as check weather forecasts, all while enjoying your favorite TV shows.

This, in my opinion, is supercharging the TV. It is like the Google Assist is now living inside the TV and able to execute the commands for the TV as well as connecting outside to retrieve data that you might wanted.

Now, that is something I want. The feature will be added via a software update. Check out the Press Release for details.

LG INTRODUCES GOOGLE ASSISTANT TO ITS RANGE OF THINQ AI TVS

Software Update Available for Users to Search for Information and Manage Tasks

SINGAPORE, March 8, 2019— LG Electronics (LG) has equipped its award-winning OLED and SUPER UHD TVs with the newly introduced Google Assistant feature. Available on all LG ThinQ AI TV models, users are able to execute more than simple voice commands to switch channels or adjust the volume. Now empowered with Google Assistant built-in, the TVs will further enhance the user experience with greater interactivity and expanded functionality.

A Streamlined Experience to Find Answers and Manage Tasks via the TV

Users can now use voice commands to access and search for information as well as check weather forecasts, all while enjoying their favorite TV shows. They can search for specific content by making a verbal request through the TV’s remote control, such as “show me romantic comedy movies on Netflix” or “show me yoga videos”. They can also get help to manage daily tasks by scheduling calendar events, or pull out specific photo albums in their Google Drive gallery to share and reminisce with friends and family.

More than that, users can even request for food, retail and hangout recommendations. Details such as the contact information and address of the newest restaurant openings, or highly rated F&B establishments are now at their fingertips.

“LG continues to improve the TV experience at home with greater offerings like the addition of the Google Assistant feature,” says Hosik Kim, Product Director of LG Home Entertainment. “Beyond entertainment, consumers can now conveniently use LG AI ThinQ TVs to manage content, plan calendar events, access files and search for information from a single platform.”
